Dear friends, 

Due to the COVID19 situation, Prison Book Program is suspending all volunteer activities until it is safe to gather in groups.

We are not accepting book donations at this time except for purchases from our wish lists at Wellesley Books and Amazon.

At our last session on March 12th, numerous volunteers stayed late, until 10:30 pm, to get every last package wrapped up and out the door. Almost 300 packages went out. This is what gives us hope: our community’s dedication to one another. Huge thanks to all our volunteers, and especially the team from our last volunteer session! 

A few members of our leadership team will come in to keep up-to-date on reading mail and other tasks. We will consider holding extra sessions to catch up when it is safe to reopen. 

During this uncertain time, our thoughts are with those in prison, who are already so isolated. We hope that the books we’ve sent are keeping people entertained and enlightened. 

We are grateful to our community of volunteers and supporters. Take care of one another. 

Your friends at the Prison Book Program
